Only Three Months and a Bit to Go

I just realized that I'm about a week away from the three month mark of going on maternity leave.

Holy freaking crap.

You know what this means, right?

This means that in 3.75 months, I will be woken up every two hours by a baby who wants to eat and the other alternate hours, I will be woken up by my small-bladdered toddler who needs to pee.

I will never freaking sleep again.

But on the plus side, have you seen how cute and tiny 0-3 month clothing is? They're really, really tiny and cute, and anything that fits in clothes that small can't be that bad, right? RIGHT???

I'm heading off to yet another doctor's appointment now. I'm sure this is the one where they'll schedule the glucose test of death. When you don't like sweets when you're pregnant and you're forced to drink what feels like a gallon of pure sugar, it ain't quite as fun as a day at Six Flags, I'm just saying.

Sleep is overrated, right?

And tiny clothes? Just be happy you are having another boy. Cuz tiny clothes have a way of revisting girls in their teen years. (have you seen how short skirts are now?)

And that sugar drink? Pretend it's a cocktail being served to by Ramon, the gorgeous latino pool boy....who just happens to be a Chippendales dancer that has a pregnant woman fetish!

Sleep smeep. Who needs sleep when you have something that cute and small?
Good luck at the doctor appt!

The glucose test is horrid even if you do like sugar when you're pregnant. Yuck. Yuck.

They gave me my sugar crap drink to take home and drink 45 min before my appointment. If you are able to do that. Make it nice and cold and drink it with a straw. Goes down much easier. If you have to drink it at the office, bring a straw and some ice cubes. Seriously.
Wish I knew that 1st time around.

I second what beach mama said, see if they'll give it to you know and put it right in your fridge. Tastes better ice cold!

It doesn't taste good, but I discovered it has changed a lot in the last 10 years (since CS was born) and it isn't quite as bad as it used to be.

And OMG YES! The clothes! said...

Why do you need sleep anyways, lovebug? You crack me up more when you are a little crazy from lack of sleep. And, we know it's all about me and my needs, right?

sleep? what is this sleep of which you speak?

i haven't had a good (read: uninterrupted) night's sleep since may 5, 1981.

yep. it's been that long. either they wake up you -- or you're awake wondering what they're doing. and where. and why.

just for the record, the person who said childrearing is an 18-year commitment is a moron (except for the commitment part ... i will be committed any day now).

Marmarbug said...

Ugh I always say I'll sleep when I'm dead.
And your right anything THAT small is worth it and not scary at all!
It'll be lovely.

Actually I am just going to learn from you. If you are crazy after #2 it will confirm my ideas to have another. You're welcome! MUAH!

With the boys I was able to sleep between the ages of 5 and 14. After 15, you lose sleep again!

Ms. Porter said...

Wow, for me your pregnancy is going by so quickly! Hee hee. As for the lack of sleep...I've got nothing encouraging to say, and even if I did you already know what to expect. You also know how joyous and euphoric it can be, keep thinking about that part.

Sleep is overrated. And, don't you dare tell me otherwise because I am clinging desperately to that little belief right there. It gives me hope at moments of despair.

I really don't have a sweet-tooth so just reading about your potential glucose test gave me a mini-throwup.
